New Zealand hasn’t got off to a good start in the ongoing series against India. The hosts have lost the first two matches and will play the third to stay alive in the series. Not only the Kiwis have lost the first two matches but also they have been outplayed by the India National Cricket Team. Consequently, New Zealand police took a dig at their own team in the ongoing India vs New Zealand 2019 series.
The hosts lost the first match at Napier by a margin of eight wickets. The Blackcaps lost the second match at Bay Oval by 90 runs. Thus, it has been one-way traffic in the ongoing series.
India has been dominated the ongoing series.
New Zealand police launched a warning to the members of the general public. The police took to their Facebook page to caution the public about the assault of the Indian team.
The post read as, “Police would like to issue a warning to members of the public about the exploits of a group touring the country at the moment. Witnesses report seeing this group badly assault an innocent looking bunch of New Zealanders in both Napier and Mt Maunganui in the last week. Extra care should be taken if you are carrying anything that looks like a cricket bat or ball.?”
Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris took to his Twitter account to comment on the post.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma was awarded the man of the match for his knock of 87 runs. The right-hander added 154 runs for the opening stand with Shikhar Dhawan. The southpaw batsman scored a good knock of 66 runs to help India get off to a flyer.
Subsequently, Indian spinners continued their penchant of hunting down the host’s batsmen. The Kiwis batters were all at sea against the duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. Kuldeep Yadav scalped four wickets and breathed down the neck of the opposition batsmen.
Furthermore, MS Dhoni stroked a fine knock of 48 runs to help the Indian team end their innings on a high. The third ODI will take place at Bay Oval on January 28.
